Customized sessions for classes and researchers

We also offer individualized training sessions and seminars for classrooms and researchers, including faculty, students, and project teams. View our previous training sessions to see examples of the types of training we can provide. We will also work with you to create customized training in multiple software applications.

For additional assistance integrating SESA programs into your classroom, we are also happy to collaborate with faculty and teaching assistants to develop SESA assignments and laboratory activities.

We also provide in-depth consulting to faculty and students on research projects. If necessary, the group has the technical knowledge to go into the scientific details of the project and offer specific advice, recommendations, and appropriate applications.
